3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A Tale of Two Bottles - first was Eh, at best. Second was stellar. Nice toasted cracker malt backbone. Big wet, fresh hops on the nose. Sharp and powerful hop presence with a pronounced tart grapefruit citrus. Some deep grassy notes with a huge floral hop presence and notes of pine. Crisp, light dry finish. Very nice pale that doesnt shy away from the great Northwest hop tradition.

from bottle. had been afraid it would be light and summery. colors alittle lighter & hazy. still close to an ipa.aroma of grapefruit, white sugar, almost apricot. a little flat in the mouth, and light. flavor at about 80% intensity, some harsh edge at that. overall pleasant

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2009 Overall not a bad beer. My bottle got a little skunked, but its not too overpowering. Pours a clear, slightly hazy goldenrod with white head that sticks around a little. Flavor is crisp hoppage, with notes of grass and grain. Finish is clean. Decent.

Nicely sweet with some sticky hops in the aroma. Crustal clear, light amber in color, with a thin white head. Biscuity and toasty, nice caramel with stingy hoppiness. Slight grass, pine and citrus. Great beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber at home. Pours a fairly hazy bright yellow, with a rapidly disappearing head and good adhesion. Herbal aroma, not too strong. Taste is pleasant, a little chewier than other hoppy pale ales -- they didnít cheapen on the grain bill -- itís a little stronger than most "session" pale ales, but thatís okay by me. Good palate, thicker than most, with long grassy aftertaste. Recommended.
